Drake, Paul Anka Recorded Together
Singer-songwriter Paul Anka has revealed that he and fellow Canadian Drake teamed up for a collaboration that is expected to drop in June.
Anka made the announcement onstage in Toronto on Friday night during the Canadian Music And Broadcast Industry Awards, where he was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award from Michael Bublé.
Anka, 76, is known for hits like "Diana" and "Lonely Boy," as well as penning Tom Jones' "She's A Lady" and the english lyrics for Frank Sinatra's classic "My Way."
“I’m working with a brilliant young artist who is as hot as you can get right now, a fellow young Canadian and his name is Drake,” the Ottawa native said during his speech. “We recorded something that will be released, out in June. That’s all I can tell you.”
In February, the “Put Your Head On My Shoulder” singer posted a photo with the Toronto rapper.
“One of the great nights...lots to follow! Love working with Drake,” Anka captioned the post.
Drake is expected to drop his forthcoming album Scorpion in June.
